Watching the Setting Sun

Surely one of life's little pleasures must be sitting on a hill watching the sunset? If you are in Ashton there is no better place to do this than Hartshead Pike, just a couple of miles north east of the town.

As a recent gorgeous sunny day drew to an end, I went up to "The Pike" to see the sunset. Unsurprisingly I was not the only person to have that idea. This couple and their dog had walked up from nearby Mossley to enjoy the spectacle.

Sky Watch is a regular weekly feature on this photo blog. It links with websites all over the world with the general theme each week of looking upwards. Please take the opportunity to visit some of these other sites. I hope some new visitors have found their way here today, watching the skies!
